Bearing serve to rotate the wheel on the hub with less resistance. They transmit the force applied to rotate the wheel on the axle. On the rear axle bearing modules are often used. When replacing the part, the module is entirely replaced. On the front axle there are installed angular contacts, conical roller, or radial bearings. It depends on the car model. To install and dismantle the wheel bearing a special tool is required. Therefore, it will be necessary to go to the car repair shop if the bearing is faulty.
In course of time wheel bearings wear out. As the bearing wears out, the noise level increases. Especially loud noise is when cornering. Increased noise level when cornering to the left indicates a faulty on the right side. Sometimes a play can appear because of wear. This problem can be diagnosed. When you turn the wheel press once on the brake and once turn the wheels without brake. If the play occurs in the last case, the problem is with the bearing.
If there is a faulty, you need to replace the bearing. To repair it you need a special press to press a new bearing in. Do not try to replace the bearing by yourself using a sledgehammer. A defective bearing must be timely replaced as it is dangerous to drive with a faulty bearing.
